The Memory of Japan


Like an Okinawan girl
Given to hungry men
The memory of Japan
Has left the human world

Like a unbaby born
In the unrising sun
The memory of Japan
Is even beneath scorn

Like a subjugated people
Tattered & devoured
The memory of Japan
Exist only to the evil

Like a wasteland of the dead
Where life is ever laughing
The memory of Japan
Fades unseen & unsaid

Like a people cooked as stew
Not even to be consumed
The memory of Japan
Is all but almost through

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
